    My stock '99 UZJ100 has a slight nose-down attitude (as if looking down its nose at all of the Ranger Rovers, &nbsp:Discos, Tahoos, and Expositories in this town!). ;)
    Is this a normal stance for the 100 series? ???
    Where should I measure ground to vehicle to check whether it really is off level and how much?
    thanks

    The nose down is normal. When I had stock tires on my 99 I didn't really notice, but with my 31 inch tires it shows alot. The front wheel well is full and there is space in the rear. Some day I want to make it sit even. I think it would look better that way. Why would Toyota make the cruiser sit like that, is it for towing?

    It sits that way so when it is loaded with people and gear it will sit level and not have the nose pointing into the air.
